Re: Jeff Green, John Caddle, Sam Brown Comments

Dear Jeff, John, and Sam,

My name is Aaron Crocker, and I'm the co-owner of Gauntlet Fitness Kickboxing. Having read the reviews you gentlemen were kind enough to post, I wanted to expend my appreciation to each of you for your comments.
If you'll grant me a retort, I'd like to address each of your comments one by one.

Jeff Green: NOT REAL - "place is for fitness...THEY DO NOT TEACH REAL BOXING OR KICKBOXING!"

Thank you Jeff, for your comment. And you are right ... this is a place for fitness. We are proudly a non-sparring facility where our members are able to workout in a safe environment, get in really good shape (one of our men just lost 60 pounds) and develop striking skills that may help rescue them in an unexpected altercation.

If, when you say that we don't don teach REAL boxing or kickboxing, what you mean is that we don't get in a ring and try to bruise ribs, create concussions, or black eyes ... then I'll grand your critique.

If however, what you mean to say is that we don't know what we are doing in regard to kickboxing, then sir, I'd simply ask you to come by and pay us a visit personally, and go through one of our workouts with us. You are invited and you'll be warmly greeted.

John Caddle: BS - "they stand around an hit a giant steel contraption with pads on it...not learning to box."

Thank you John, for your insight. May I ask you a question? What kind of equipment does it take to learn how to box? A traditional heavy bag, perhaps? Or maybe a set of used tires bolted together? Or (maybe like in harlem) where back street boxers hit mattress and hanging washing machines? I doubt you'd criticize these guys for their training methods.

Instead, Gauntlet offers a state of the art, next generation striking unit that will protect the hands, elbows, knees and legs of our customers. And as with Jeff, you are invited to come for a complimentary class and experience what we are doing first hand. You'd be warmly accepted.

Sam Brown: Fake - "this guy doesn't know beans about kick boxing,no sparring,no defence drills, no footwork...they just his a high piece of equipment!!!"

Thanks Sam, for your comment. Which guy are you referring to? Must be me, because it can't possibly be 6th Degree David Sheram. His training saved his life in a dark alley against a knife. I want to extend to you the same offer I've made both Jeff and John above ... you are welcome to actually come and see for yourself if we are teaching footwork, proper striking methods, and an excellent environment to do it in.

You are right in that we do not allow sparring. We simply are not the facility who feels our clients must leave with mild to severe concussions, beat up ribs, bloody noses, sore jaws, black eyes, kinks in their neck and other injuries to get in great shape.

And since our focus is on fitness (and not about MMA or competitive boxing or kickboxing) we offer the very best in boxing / kickboxing for fitness.

One request men: Know of what you speak.

GREAT OWNER

I attended church with the owner of this facility and will have to recommend all to try and partcipate in this innovative program. Aaron is one of the greatest men I've ever had the pleasure of being around and he's committed to physical fitness. I hope this is a home run for he and his staff as they began this great opportunity to make a difference.

Awesome experience

I took my wrestling team there for a workout during the Christmas break and my guys loved it. They have asked me many times if we can go back. I will say this will be the most fun you have ever had training and getting into shape. We look forward to our next adventure to Gauntlet.
